Pathfinder a boost for Nissan

Motor Torque

There seems to be few bright spots on Nissan’s watch at the moment with sales in the first two months down 18.3 per cent however its X-Trail and Pathfinder SUV’s are up 14 and 32 per cent respectively. On the Pathfinder front. a revised model has just arrived in a nine model 2 and 4WD range that spans from 41,990 to 69,190. The well-sized US-Built seven-seat Pathfinder has found strong favour with some families particularly in recent years as Nissan has softened it from a hard nose 4WD to a family friendly SUV – the update brings changes to the trusty 3.5-litre V6 engine, 50 per cent of the engine components are new, providing slightly more power and torque and improved economy. The base Pathfinder ST rises $500 to 41,990 all other models remain unchanged.

Interestingly, Nissan are banking on the demise of the local Ford Territory at the end of the year to give its Pathfinder a boost in sales.
